My computer was in a good mood this week, it allowed me to choose 2 different instruments without crashing (!) I had to be quick before it changed it’s mind…..:) So, here is a story……
The next day after a wild night out, during one of my trips I was resting on a small tranquil cathedral square in Basel, Switzerland. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon and my ears were still protesting from the night before. A few people wandered aimlessly around trying to control their children. I was tired and closed my eyes in the afternoon sun. In the distance I noticed the church organ was playing, I tried to follow where the music was going. The church doors were open and I decided to take a look inside. I’m the only one there, apparently they were rehearsing. I take a seat in the last row.
The hours of music the night before couldn’t weigh up to the 3 minutes of music in the church. This was a great day, life made perfect sense to me.
I don’t know what they played, this happened 20 years ago but I do remember the atmosphere and how it made me feel….With this piece I tried to reproduce the atmosphere.
Please, use a headset, (on small computer speakers the piece will crash and burn) close your eyes and imagine the scene….
All comments welcome and highly appreciated.
(I’m sorry for the unintended Nimrod quote, it was there before I knew it…..)
